Paris Jackson is making her feature film debut. Michael Jackson's 19-year-old daughter will star in an untitled movie directed by Nash Edgerton for Amazon Studios. USA Today provides some tidbits: In the dark comedy, she plays an "edgy 20-year-old" alongside a "mild-mannered businessman-turned-criminal," played by David Oyelowo, who gets mixed up in the Mexican drug trade.

Other big names in the film include Charlize Theron and Thandie Newton, Deadline reports. Jackson recently starred in a TV show for the first time, playing a part in the March 8 episode of Fox drama Star. That was a big month for her: She signed with IMG Models and covered the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. In a January Rolling Stone interview she described growing up with her dad.
